You must sign up for an account if you want to upload a Sad Thing or write comments about other people's Sad Things.
See the Registration Tips to the right of the form for more information.
Your user name is just your email address, so there's nothing else to remember except your email address and password.
No spam EVER.
The only thing we use your email address for is to confirm that a human is registering for an account. We do not share email addresses with anyone, nor do we send spam email to our users. We totally respect your privacy, and hate spam.
Your email address will never be shown to other visitors of this site. Your face to the world is your Display Name (see below).
Also known as...
Your "display name" is the name that people will see when they view your uploaded Sad Things or comments. Display names must be unique - no two users can have the same one - but they don't have to be awkward single words (e.g. dirkdiggler69) like most user names (although they can be).
Only the penitent shall pass.
We ask you to enter your password twice just to make sure you typed it correctly. If you forget your password, another can be generated and sent to your registered email address.
That's it. Once you submit this form (and are given a success message) you'll be sent a confirmation email that will provide a link you must click to auto-confirm your account. After you're confirmed, you can be uploading a new Sad Thing within seconds.
You don't have to register if you just want to view and vote on sad things that other people have uploaded.
